Weber, Susanne (Author) Schoene, Kerstin (Illustrator)

Are hedgehog kisses prickly? Certainly not for the young hedgehog.

But exactly how does the mummy hedgehog kiss her child? And how does the little penguin come by a kiss? On each new page, there’s a different, enchanting scene of creatures kissing. One thing is certainly very clear: all the baby animals get a lovely big smacker of a kiss from their mummy.

With beautiful illustrations and rhymes, Giraffe Kiss and Crocodile Smacker carries the very young off to an affectionate animal world, where mummy animals kiss their children in their own, very special way.

Paul the sloth, the kind of friend every child would love to have

Paul is a sloth, but there’s nothing lazy and slothful about him – quite the opposite, in fact. While the other sloths all hang around doing nothing all day, Paul spends his time with his friend the monkey. Paul never tires of climbing and eating bananas with him, and seeing which of them is the faster swimmer. Does Paul never get tired?

Paul, Not Lazy At All is full of delightful details and amusing rhymes, making it an ideal read-aloud picture book to come back to time and time again.

Pulling, pushing, eyes shut! Which animal goes to sleep? Eating porridge, brushing teeth, singing a lullaby – and before they know it, the cuddly toys’ eyes are falling shut.

Now there’s only one person still awake. The cuddly kiddy him or herself, who can now also curl up and go to sleep, just like the animals! A counting rhyme to join in with and a goodnight book that’s sure to become a favourite!

Moser, Annette (Author) Opheys, Caroline (Illustrator)

All the animals think they’re tall –
Even those that are very small.
But none of them’s as tall by half
As the tree-top touching, giant giraffe.

What about you? Are you as tall as a mouse, or a sheep, or a bear?
The concertina growth chart will tell you, and it will go on telling you until you are fully grown.
